Building Demolition and Deconstruction

Most home & building owners are curious about how much it will cost to have their house or building removed.

The cost of wrecking a house or small commercial structure in the Puget Sound area is generally anywhere between $3/sf to $12/sf. Deconstruction is generally more costly, mostly dependent upon the construction type. The cost of demolition has many variables including, but not limited to accessibility, hazards specific to the site, construction type, permitting, proximity to local landfills or transfer stations, and hazardous materials issues. Please feel free to request a no obligation quote on your job.

Hazardous waste issues also can sometimes be a large cost of a demolition project. Occasionally the abatement portion costs more than the actual demolition aspect of the project. A hazardous waste survey must be performed prior to any structural demolition or deconstruction project and asbestos permits also have to be acquired to remove asbestos (separate from the demolition permit).

Demolition Man Inc. can assist in acquiring demolition & abatement notification permits, and asbestos surveys.
